When Russell Sansom designed this shawl he said that it reminded him of the Dorset coastline close to his home. Coincidentally, it is the same beach where Mary Anning, a famous fossil hunter would search for and sell her fossils. She discovered the first ichthyosaur fossil there as well! She really lead an interesting life and she is why we have the famous tongue twister, “She sells sea shells down by the sea shore!” It was if the shawl chose its own name!
Russell’s free pattern will be released here on August 9th! All this week I will be posting images from the testers to show you just how versatile this pattern can be. Until then I’ll give you the details of what you’ll need to complete the project.
